I Raised Massive Rhino Beetles

    Rhinoceros Beetles (Xylotrupes gideon philippinensis) are truly some of the most spectacular and majestic creatures of the insect world. This is why I was thrilled to add some beetle larvae to our growing menagerie of creatures in the 'Antiverse' (my Ant Room).

    Back in October, when I first got the scarab beetle grubs, I prepared growth chambers for them, to house them as they developed into beetles. I was told they were going to emerge by Christmas time, but when both Christmas and New Year passed with no beetle in sight, I finally made the decision supported by your votes, to go in and look for them! What we discover in this video will truly amaze you, as well as my grand idea for us to have some fun with a beetle tournament.

    Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

                Nobody else seems to be choosing beetles for the tournament, so I'm gonna choose Ares, since he's the god of war.
